The MAY CURoundup…

But first…the CURoundup is getting a facelift! We’ve been doing some updates behind-the-scenes, and the CURoundup will be seeing a few of those tweaks. 🙂


There’s nothing that lights us up + encourages us more than reading your podcast reviews! If you enjoy listening to THRIVE, would you take 30 seconds to drop your thoughts in a review right here? It might seem small, but it really, truly helps SO MUCH in getting the show in the earbuds of other gals who are ready to thrive, too!



Top sellers are pulled from analytics data, where I can see what YOU shopped + clicked the most all month long! No worries – it doesn’t tell me what all was in someone’s cart, or who bought what. 😉 But it’s helpful for me to see what’s most popular with the CURowd, and hopefully helpful/fun for YOU to see what fellow readers are shopping, too!

1.) Amazon seamless maternity undies – One thing I had to upgrade pretty quickly in pregnancy was my underwear game. Everything just grows down there, so I stocked up on a few seamless options from Amazon and was SO pleasantly surprised. Turns out, they’re fantastic and stay put, sans seams or lines. 

2.) $16 gingham dress – The dress of the season – so sweet for spring, whether it’s for a bridal or baby shower, an afternoon at a winery, church or a girls’ night.


3.) Amazon jumpsuitThe Free People Hot Shot Onesie look-for-less we reviewed here on the blog. BUT, since trying that one, I’ve tried this one and think it’s even better – so if you’re looking for a slightly more affordable alternative to the Free People jumper, I’d say try this one! (It’s the tan one on the right below!)

4.) Hot Shot Onesie – Like we’ve said, though, I still stan the actual Free People onesie. If you’re in the market, it’s worth it.

FREE PEOPLE HOT SHOT ONESIE - and an affordable Amazon alternative dupe!


5.) Amazon claw clips – These are the BEST claw clips I’ve tried so far – they stay PUT and hold your hair securely, even if it’s on the longer and/or thicker side. And you get a 4-pack for not even 10 bucks, so it’s a pretty dang good deal!

6.) Soma Enbliss BraAlways a tried and true favorite wireless bra – I’ve worn the Enbliss for YEARS at this point. 

7.) Best no-show socksTruly, the very best no show socks on Planet Earth. I will forever stan! Have thrown out all others and none can compare. They stay in PLACE on your foot and don’t slide down into your shoe, and they don’t rub or leave imprints or marks either.

8.) Patricia the braidI laughed seeing Patricia make her way back up the bestsellers list – good ol’ Patricia! ICYMI, Patricia the braid is a real ride-or-die gal. A great fake braid headband that saves time getting ready while giving you a totally chic look that looks waaaay more time intensive than you’ve spent on slipping it on. Literal 10-second hair hack!

My 10 second EASY HAIR HACK - a $18 fake braid headband!

9.) Louis Vuitton bum bag look-for-less – LoveloveLOVE this bum bag. When Taylor was visiting for my baby shower, she borrowed it and bought it on the spot – it holds a surprisingly large amount of things and is so efficiently spaced inside. For not even 50 bucks, it’s an awesome afforable alternative to the $1500 Louis Vuitton bum bag, and the coated canvas material and interior are both similar enough to get what you need for significantly less.

10.) $33 swimsuit – Easy, “mom-friendly” one piece swimsuit for summer.

11.) Walmart weekenderThis is SUCH a good weekender bag – my favorite anymore! The size, the pockets, the multiple straps, the wipeable nylon…the whole nine yards. It’s also a great alternative to this $300+ designer bag!

12.) Gold sunglasses chain – A personal favorite purchase. 🙂 Such a small-but-chic way to uplevel your sunglass look, but also so practicel! I lovelovelove that I can let my sunnies safely hang on my chest now instead of tossed into a bag – and it’s especially great for holding sunnies with nose pieces that I don’t put on the top of my head (or they get tangled up in there…IYKYK). Bonus, got them from an Etsy shop!

Have a beautiful long weekend. 🙂
